7:43am
pressed through at 7:30 last night. wham. then on the back side of that, we're going to clear it out and get a few high clouds in the north bay. that's going to about do it. the next system is going to be powering toward california. that's going to be coming in late tuesday and wednesday. pacific northwest stays wet in the meantime. for us, we'll get increasing sunshine over the next 24 hours or so. so today looks high and dry. so does monday. by the way, the numbers will be mostly in the 60s for the bay area. and sunshine favors more of the north bay than the south bay. it will be in the 60s for the north bay and south bay. a few showers coming in on tuesday. we get showers coming in to the bay area on tuesday, lingering through early wednesday. that will be it. thanksgiving looks nice and dry. latest on the news, here's phil and ann.
7:44am

7:45am
the way it is now, according to the legislative analyst. what we've seen in the past are irresponsible budgets. when i got to the legislature 3 and half years ago, four, almost. we had $42 billion we had to cut. look at that budget. it's put together with strings, and we spent more money than we had. the debt service right now is almost 9%. it was irresponsible. we had to deal with it. unfortunately the citizens of california had to face it and live with it. we can't get to that position again. that's really going to be the struggle. >> because even as we speak, there are a number of groups, the education lobby and others who said it's time now, since we do have this money coming in, to restore the cuts. in other words, start spending again. >> well, we can't. we can't do that because if you look at this budget and part of the deficit we're looking at next year, it's because the facebook ipo did not come in as
7:46am
high as it was supposed to in terms of the stock sales. how can the 8th largest economy depend on social media stock price. that's not right. we should be dependent upon good revenue, good resources, and proper expenditures. we have not been there. that's where we have to focus on that. that irresponsibility will come right back and haunt us again. there's no reserve in the state. we should take that one time money and spend it on one time causes and pay off the debt service. try to balance things in the long run. that's not what we've done. i think the pressure will be there. the other thing we're faced with is in the assembly, it's new members. they were not there on the floor, trying to balance the $42 billion. they don't remember. that we have to show them the responsible way, i think. >> right. you seem a little temperate about this, but we have the new people coming in. you know there's a lot of
7:47am
democrats that will tend toward massive spending. how are you going to deal with that? >> the governor made it clear he wants a responsible and even keeled budget. he doesn't want to raise taxes unless it goes to the voters. i think that's the responsible thing to do. it's going to be to hold back, the challenge, we do owe education a large amount of money. we have to pay that back. we have to bring k-12 education back to where it was before or this economy is not going to be the 8th largest in the world again. on the spending front, the governor says no new taxes without a vote of the people. we have fees. that's another thing. you guys can pass those with your new majority. do you see that happening? >> well, the new majority is not going to take effect until next year. there are a number of vacant seats that will have to be filled. i think we have added fees already. that's something we've been able to do historically by changing fees and adding them. i think it will be an
7:48am
adjustment to make sure costs is associated with whatever the project is. i don't think there will be -- we have to be responsible. i think the legislature will be responsible in this time. we know we cannot afford not to be. >> do you trust these legislative fees? >> i do. they've been accurate in the past. the problem with these projections, showing the $1 billion surplus in a couple of years and up to 9 billion by 2017. the problem with those is it's based on status quo. no salary increases, no excessive or more spending. we have $40 billion of bonds we have not sold yet. that's going to added to the $8.9 billion debt service every year. that's the problem. it's good, but it's not going to stay the same. >> the other concern about that is looking farther into the future, some of the rules, new environmental laws, new taxes people are going to be paying. are we going to see more rich people leaving the state?
7:49am
long term, what do you see here? >> long term i see the state as the economy improves, california is still the best economy in the country. we still have the best -- look at the innovation economy in silicon valley. it drives the state. >> but facebook, we projected high, it falls low. >> it falls low, but it still brought in 1.2 billion instead of 1.9. that's a lot of money. people do leave and the perception is we're antibusiness. we're not business friendly. i think we have to change that perception. there are ways of doing that. i think we're going to work hard to do it in the future, weapon the environmental laws as well. >> state senator elect jerry hill. almost state senator, on the third. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back. wishing you a happy thanksgiving.
7:50am

7:55am
a long way. >> probably five or six kids are going to be able to go to college that otherwise might not have gone to college r. when this happened, asking them for their unused tickets to events. he then turns around and resells them on stub hub or craig's list. >> so you get things to all different kinds of events. >> i've gone to alameda county fair tickets. >> giants tickets, raiders games, musicals, jack created a website that collects and delivers tickets while still managing senior year classes, college applications, and college football practices. >> i loved it. visiting richmond and seeing how they need the support, it's just really touching how i can make a difference. >> so for helping others reach their college goal, this week jefferson award in the bay area

8:13am
rosa. other than that, the field today will be far more sunshine than we had yesterday and the rain now has headed east to the bay area. increasing sunshine for us today. numbers still on the mild side. for san francisco, we're going to be looking at numbers on monday if you're headed out. 64 at the airport. looks good. no airport delays on monday. los angeles is sunny. so for the most part, so is chicago. new york looks okay for a change. 52. for the bay area, the numbers will be in the low 60s today. almost uniformly. some high thin clouds. aside from that, nice and sunny. same holds true tomorrow. we increase the clouds late in the day so late tuesday and early wednesday we stand to get wet, especially in the north bay. then as we head toward thanksgiving, the all important travel weekend coming up. it looks like the weather is cooperating. we'll be dry for thanksgiving and next weekend looks dry as well. after a shot of showers late tuesday and early wednesday,
8:14am
we'll dry it up. have a great sunday. we'll update for you in a few minutes. >> thanks, brian. the sex scandal of the week, david petraeus answered to lawmakers after the affair of with his biographer. >> there's still plenty of questions about the state of the security in libya -- the security and the fallout from the affair. >> i'm going to ask what a lot of people are asking me this week. this whole thing was triggered into an fbi investigation due to e-mails sent by two people who were -- how do we put it, having a relationship with petraeus one way or another? >> you know, girls get jealous and start threatening each other on e-mail. >> when did that become an fbi crime? >> this is a reminder that our law enforcement alleges have a lot of discretion into the people they might trigger
8:15am
investigations to be pursued. that's what happened here. the fbi agent deemed this a credible threat, presumably to national security because of the high profile and identity of the alleged target here, general petraeus. >> so once they got into it, though, that's when everything started blowing up. i mean, is anything private? >> well, when the united states government decides it wants information and there's a law enforcement bassos for getting that -- basis for getting that information, e-mail is a very easy to get into source of private data. so, you know, so long as the u.s. government doesn't want to get the u.s. information, people can feel reasonably comfortable that it's not that easy for private individuals to get it, but the government just has to asks google. the isp, the internet service provider, generally complies if they consider it a reasonable
8:16am
request. this has triggered google to look at their policies as well as the other providers. >> so what the situation is i write an e-mail, i own that e- mail. i own the rights of what's in it. in other words, if i give you a script or something like that, that's intellectual property. there's privacy bounds, but if the government wants to come in and say we want to look at his e-mails, they're complying? >> the government has to have a good reason. the holder of the information, google in this instance -- >> who determine what is is a good reason? you don't go in front of a judge and make the call? >> you only go in front of a judge if you have to get a warrant. right now we have a dated sort of scheme of privacy protections in the electronic communication privacy act. the way that's being interpreted by the courts, if an e-mail is older than six months, there's no need to get a warrant from a judge. in that case, the fbi has the authority to make the
8:17am
decisions, subject to the support of supervisors. so that's a big distinction. that information, if it's older than six months, it's deemed no -- not protected. >> we're not talking about you and i. we're talking about the military general. but the standards are so high hen it comes to moral conduct. is that something that should be relooked. >> this is troubling. we have an all volunteer military, we have since the end of the vietnam war. we ask the servicemen to take risks for us. >> he's also the director of the cia. if he's the top spy in the top spy network in the world and he's doing something this stupid, that's a standard right
8:18am
there. >> but he wasn't compromising national security. he was compromising himself, his marriage. >> but he's a top spy. he should know people are going to be looking at him. does he have a different standard? >> petraeus has rewritten the rules in many ways, i think. he's been a celebrity the military has not had for a long time. he retired early from the military. he was only 60 when he left. he's made different rules for himself and he's held himself out to a standard and once this happened, his own self-created image was undercut. >> i think the whole thing has been interesting too and the media's fixation on it. calling out ourselves on this. there's so many important things to be talking about, and the sex scandal grabs the headlines. >> i'm sorry. he's america's top spy. >> not anymore. >> anything you write out there after six months they can come and just say we would like to take a look at it. >> if there's a threat or reason that it's -- >> or if they think there's a
8:19am
threat. >> correct. >> okay. professor hillman, we're going to be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
8:20am
8:21am
